William Mundy United Kingdom
William Mundy (c.1529 - c.1591) was an English composer of sacred vocal music during one of the most dynamic eras in English music. Little is known of Mundy's life, but it is known that he served as a Gentleman of the Chapel under Queen Elizabeth and so enjoyed some renown during his lifetime. At least one writer praised him as the second greatest composer of the age, after William Byrd. Mundy's music exhibits a wide range of styles, from the older Latin antiphon tradition to the modern English verse anthem.
